The NFL Draft approaches. It’s the same old story (or stories) in Eagles land.
Most of us have been watching this Philadelphia Eagles team so long that we probably could have scripted the top storylines heading into the 2022 NFL Draft last April. After all, it isn’t like anything changes from one selection meeting to the next.
The needs are the same as they were in 2021 and a year earlier when we were rocked by COVID-19 and confined to our homes for safety. Nothing seems to change.
Philly needs help at wide receiver. They need an outside corner and depth at safety. They could benefit by strengthening the linebacker corps and the defensive end rotation.
They have sufficient draft capital to add talent and fill those holes. The problem is this. Vice president/general manager Howie Roseman will be leading the Eagles’ draft war room, and that doesn’t instill confidence in anyone.
If any of this sounds familiar, again, it should. How many times do we have to say it? We say the same things every year.
We’ve talked about them since February. Why not one final time? Here’s one more rundown of the Eagles’ most realistic first-round scenarios in the NFL Draft and what we hope winds up happening.
